New guy here with a few bits and pieces from a 1957 Simplex Servicycle. Been sitting in a barn for the last 35 years. It's fortunate this barn is located in S.W. Oklahoma and it's extremely dry here. There is rust for sure, mostly surface, yet the frame and roll bars are solid. Missing motor, drive train, foot rests and gas tank. I've found that there are many more frames available than motors. The rest of the good news is the frame and drop outs are straight, as is the front dual springer fork (small springs) as are the wheels and spokes front and rear. Both wheels have drum brakes that appear to be complete. No spokes brent or missing. Saddle is also misiing but the 6" headlight is proper and in very good condition. I'll not be restoring this bike as it seems better suited to a resto/mod revival, and a better use of my time and resources. I've restored vehicles in the past, frame off, and spent years searching for all the pieces at any price and frankly at my age I don't want to spend much more than a few months on any project and I like to get restores right...see my album and if God smiles on me my future posts will include photos. I have a long background riding/driving and modifying two wheels and 4 yet I look to others for inspiration and instruction. This Simplex fell into my lap, literally handed to me by an aquaintance. All he wanted for the little cycle was to see it on the road again. Dollars didn't matter. As I related he had this in a barn, always dreaming of getting it up and running for 35 years so I owe him this debt to fabricate and finance something he will be proud to watch and if he is able take the first solo on! I'll try to get some before photos today or tomorrow as our weather is rather bad today. God bless, Rick C.
